Today has been a productive day, so I am rewarding myself with a cup of Vanilla Comoro. I’ve wanted to try this tea since forever, and have heard so many good things about it. I was certainly impressed when I opened the bag and noticed a sugary vanilla icing scent from the dry leaves. While steeping, the tea filled the kitchen with a wonderful sweet aroma. The brewed tea reminds me of the way warm iced sugar cookies smell. I already love this tea for the aroma alone!
The flavor is even better than expected! Finally a tea that lives up to it’s scent! There is a smooth vanilla flavor and a creamy finish. The aftertaste is pure vanilla icing – perfect! This is one of those rare teas that for me, would be fine to stand alone without any added sweetener or milk. Of course I added some of both just to check, and it makes for a creamier cup, but is wonderful either way. Next time I am going to try added some vanilla-infused sugar that I have. Very happy that I am finally trying this tea, and that it is even better than expected. Now to curl up in bed with my book and a cup of this tea, ahhhhhh.
